Research In Motion (RIM) has announced that Blackberry 10 is set to launch across multiple countries including the UK on January 30 2013.
The platform, which is currently undergoing beta testing from top enterprise customers offers a variety of applications specifically designed for business and enterprise use, alongside a range of lifestyle and leisure applications.
The new BlackBerry Balance feature promises to enable business owners to juggle personal and work data by offering a fully encrypted work profile, which is kept separate and secure from personal content.
New features of the platform also include BlackBerry Flow and BlackBerry Hub, which combine to enable business owners to navigate across many open applications at one time, including notifications, feeds and calendar events.
The launch of the platform, which is said to possess processing speeds similar to a laptop, will coincide with the unveiling of one of two new BlackBerry 10 smartphones.
Thorsten Heins, president and CEO of RIM, who has emphasised BlackBerry 10’s collaboration, sharing, productivity and security strengths, commented: “In building BlackBerry 10, we set out to create a truly unique mobile computing experience that constantly adapts to your needs.
“Our team has been working tirelessly to bring our customers innovative features combined with a best in class browser, a rich application ecosystem, and cutting-edge multimedia capabilities.”
